MOSCOW, September 6 (Itar-Tass) — President Dmitry Medvedev at a conference over budget on Monday instructed the government to calculate budget expenditure more accurately. The government should not run out of the money for social programs before the end of the year. He also demanded that the government not understate the costs of socially significant tasks under this pretext.
By October 1, the government should submit to the State Duma the new draft budget for the next three years. The final amendments are being added now, the "Komsomolskaya Pravda" writes. "As is known, we don't have spare money. The decisions must be balanced and well-calculated, and contribute to rational use of budget money," Medvedev said.
The president insisted on rectifying the situation with high-tech medical assistance. As he noted, the calculation of this spending must be as precise as possible, while the spending itself should not be underestimated. "The situation when money runs low long before yearend and the quotas cannot be funded, should not happen again," the president said.
